I studied Information - communication systems with minors in data mining and human mobility knowledge extraction at the University of Novi Sad. I received my diploma in 2010 and enrolled 2 years of PhD studies at my home University, mainly working on spatio-temporal clusterization and aggregation of publicly available multimedia contents. During November 2012, I was a visiting researcher at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Ghent, working on the subject: "A comparative study on Bluetooth-Flickr/YouTube usage in human mobility patterns extraction".

From January 2013, I'm a PhD student and a researcher at the Database System Research of Prof. Dr. Michael Gertz and a member of "CrowdAnalyser" Research Training Group (RTG).

Research interests

Spatio-temporal data mining, human mobility and social interaction, social network analysis, knowledge management and data visualization.
